Habey, a leading manufacturer of embedded and small form-factor computers, on Thursday introduced its latest fanless computer, which complies with Intel Corp.’s next unit of computing (NUC) concept. The BIS-6922 PC utilizes a high-performance Intel Core i-series processor that is passively cooled.

Habey’s BIS-6922 is based on Intel LGA1155 mainboard with QM77 core-logic as well as quad-core Intel Core i5 or Core i7 or “Ivy Bridge” microprocessors (Intel QM67 chipset and Sandy Bridge processors available as options). The ultra-small form-factor fanless system can be equipped with up to 8GB of dual-channel DDR3 memory and features processor-integrated Intel HD Graphics 3000 or 4000 graphics adapter, dual 1Gb Ethernet, 8-channel HD audio, USB 2.0 ports, HDMI/DVI-D/D-Sub outputs, two miniPCIe slots for mSATA SSDs, one PCIe  x16 connecting finger, one PCIe x4 connecting finger and so on.

The small fanless system supports all the latest technologies that Intel’s latest integrated desktop platform has to offer, including DirectX 11-class graphics, Quick Sync hardware video encoding and decoding, Intel vPro technology, Intel Active Management technology, Trusted Execution Technology, Virtualization Technology and so on.

Habey BIS-6922 system utilizes proprietary IceFin design, which transfers heat generated by the processor to the outer edges of the case by copper heat pipes that release the thermal energy to the IceFin blades for efficient heat dissipation. In addition, there are no vent holes to further extend the life of the system by protecting the system from dust build up.

Earlier this year Intel demonstrated ultra-small desktop PC called next unit of computing (NUC) that featured fully-fledged Intel Core i3/i5 "Ivy Bridge" microprocessor. The PC used pico-ITX sized mainboard, but provided all the capabilities the latest chips from the microprocessor giant have to offer.  While Intel positions the tiny PC for embedded applications, it is likely that eventually such miniature solutions will reach desktops. While Habey’s BIS-6922 is larger than Intel’s proposed 116.6mm*112mm*39mm and is 244mm*156mm*54mm because of the IceFin cooling solution, it is clear that Habey is moving towards Intel NUC vision.

Habey BIS-6922 is officially designed for automation, digital signage, network security, point of sale, transportation or even digital surveillance applications. Pricing is unknown.

Nice. We need fanless x86 form factors to become a standard.

Damn it, I'll have to attach the Noctua NH-C12P SE14 on top of the case... XD
